Still the Southleast

Josh Barr, Flin Flon, Man.

I think the way people look at the Capitals this year is being blown way out of proportion.

They did not finish the year with 121 points because they are a powerhouse team, they finished with 121 points because the Southeast Division is an absolute joke.

Look at Olli Jokinen and Jay Bouwmeester. Both played on Florida and had excellent years, but put them in the Western Conference and suddenly the magic disappears.

Coincidence? I think not.
